In addition to the dinner, Chabad at the Beaches has posted its High Holiday services schedule. Services will be held on Rosh Hashana Sept. 20-22 to celebrate the Jewish New Year, as well as on Yom Kippur for the Day of Atonement Sept. 29. They will be held at various times at the Aaron and Blanche Scharf Chabad Center. A special children’s program will accompany the adult services. All prayers will combine the original Hebrew and translated English.

According to Executive Director Rabbi Nochum Kurinsky, the High Holiday services will be “warm, friendly and traditional.” Organizers say the past year’s services were a success, with large crowds in attendance.

"According to tradition, at the New Year the doors of heaven are open; G-d accepts all prayers, from every person," explains the Rabbi.  "It is in this spirit that we open our services to the entire community."

Membership is not required to join; all are welcome, regardless of background or affiliation. Donations are always appreciated. For more information or to RSVP please visit or call (904) 543 9301.
